Artists and communities remaking the world together.
By pairing communities’ knowledge of their needs with artists’ sense of possibility Wave Pool aims to create a society where contemporary art and artists are valued and integrated fully into the fabric and success of our city, country, and beyond. Wave Pool is creating a platform, a way for artists to play an integral role in the city. We are listening deeply, allowing the community that we serve and are a part of to tell us what to focus on next and to be collaborators and leaders in every project.
Wave Pool is a socially-engaged art center that acts as a conduit for community change through artist opportunities and support. Our space includes an art gallery, studios, artist residency program, wood shop, ceramics studio, and community gathering space. We are best known for initiating and supporting artist driven social practice projects and exhibiting work that stretches beyond our gallery walls through interactive projects that proactively help our neighbors. We work with partner organizations to tackle tough problems through asset-based development and center artist-driven solutions.
